I worked at Education Management Corporation full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Young, fun culture for people in their 20s and 30s.

Cons

Upper management refuses to hold mid-level management accountable for any amount of production. They all seem to be blind on purpose. Almost like a cult. It is as if they can do no wrong, which is a joke.

Advice to Management

Your subordinates are smarter than you. Stop acting like your title means something. You're still all idiots. You fire all the people that figure out what you are doing there, and keep everybody you can control. No room for new ideas that would work there. Way to run your company into the ground. You should fire yourselves.
